Evil has many faces. The recent mass shootings in Las Vegas and in the church in Sutherland Springs in Texas are stark reminders of that. The motives of Stephen Paddock and Devin Kelley remain unclear at this stage. Whether they will ever be brought to light in a conclusive way I don’t know.
The explanation of mental illness is often a first port of call in these kinds of cases. For the most part, that seems to me to be superficial. Anyone who callously murders men, women and children as though they are vermin is undoubtedly unbalanced. This is true whether or not they’ve ever been treated or incarcerated for mental illness. The question to be answered is what else is going on?
New Jersey Muslim stokes violence against Coptic Christians
Oraby had her profile raised during the Arab Spring, as she propagated the narrative put forth by President Barack Obama that the uprisings were all about freedom and democracy, said Dr. Mark Christian, a native of Egypt who was raised in a Muslim Brotherhood family in Cairo before he left Islam and moved to America in 2005.
Now Oraby continues to use her social media channels as an instrument for Islamism. In a recent post, she said “Muslims are the food for the nations,” helping to fulfill Muhammad’s prophecy that the global caliphate “will come again.”
Sweden has 65,000 nuclear shelters, Now it wants more.
Last month, Norway’s Nobel Peace Prize Committee handed a group dedicated to abolishing nuclear weapons its award. Now, the Swedish government is looking into expanding its existing network of nuclear fallout shelters, according to news website The Local. A first proposal was included in a report released several weeks ago and followed a review of existing shelters earlier this year, Swedish officials confirmed on Friday, saying that the proposed changes were still under consideration by the government.
Sweden already has 65,000 shelters, which would provide space for up to 7 million people, but that leaves an estimated 3 million inhabitants without protection.
New Palestinian Authority textbooks teach “martyrdom as a life goal”
For years we’ve been covering incitement on the part of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its failure to prepare Palestinian society for a resolution of the conflict via non-violent means.
The PA is viewed by the West as the ‘moderate’ Palestinian body and Israel’s supposed ‘partner for peace’, but as we’ve repeatedly highlighted, its officials routinely demonize Israel and glorify terrorists as national heroes. Young people are exposed to this radicalization, as schools and educational programs justify and condone the use of violence.
Protesters vow to continue fish farm protest amid court action
First Nations protesters at a salmon farm off the northern coast of Vancouver Island are vowing to stay, despite court action aimed at forcing them out.
Marine Harvest Canada, which runs the farm, has asked the B.C. Supreme Court for an injunction to remove protesters from its Midsummer Island farm, located about 50 kilometres east of Port Hardy in the Broughton Archipelago.
A hearing for the injunction is set for Tuesday morning.
